"Don't think, just do."
Horace
William Penn Quotes
A true friend unbosoms freely, advises justly, assists readily, adventures boldly, takes all patiently, defends courageously, and continues a friend unchangeably.
William Penn

All excess is ill, but drunkenness is of the worst sort. It spoils health, dismounts the mind, and unmans men. It reveals secrets, is quarrelsome, lascivious, impudent, dangerous and mad. He that is drunk is not a man, because he is, for so long, void of reason that distinguishes a man from a beast.
William Penn

Avoid popularity; it has many snares, and no real benefit.
William Penn

Between a man and his wife nothing ought to rule but love. Authority is for children and servants, yet not without sweetness.
William Penn

William Penn

For death is no more than a turning of us over from time to eternity.
William Penn

Force may make hypocrites, but it can never make converts.
William Penn

William Penn

I expect to pass through life but once. If therefore, there be any kindness I can show, or any good thing I can do to any fellow being, let me do it now, and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again.
William Penn

I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.
William Penn

If thou wouldn't conquer thy weakness thou must not gratify it.
William Penn

In marriage do thou be wise; prefer the person before money; virtue before beauty; the mind before the body.
William Penn

It would be far better to be of no church than to be bitter of any.
William Penn

Kings in this should imitate God, their mercy should be above their works.
William Penn

Knowledge is the treasure, but judgment is the treasurer of the one who is wise.
William Penn

Less judgment than wit is more sail than ballast.
William Penn

Let the people think they govern and they will be governed.
William Penn

Men are generally more careful of the breed of their horses and dogs than of their children.
William Penn

Much reading is an oppression of the mind, and extinguishes the natural candle, which is the reason of so many senseless scholars in the world.
William Penn

Never play cards with a man called Doc. Never eat at a place called Moms. Never sleep with a woman whose troubles are worse than your own.
William Penn

No pain, no palm; no thorns, no throne; no gall, no glory, no glory; no cross, no crown.
William Penn

O Lord, help me not to despise or oppose what I do not understand.
William Penn

Only trust thyself, and another shall not betray thee.
William Penn

Passion is the mob of the man, that commits a riot upon his reason.
William Penn

Patience and Diligence, like faith, remove mountains.
William Penn

Sense shines with a double luster when it is set in humility. An able yet humble man is a jewel worth a kingdom.
William Penn

Some are so very studious of learning what was done by the ancients that they know not how to live with the moderns.
William Penn

Speak properly, and in as few words as you can, but always plainly; for the end of speech is not ostentation, but to be understood.
William Penn

The tallest Trees are most in the Power of the Winds, and Ambitious Men of the Blasts of Fortune.
William Penn

They have a right to censure that have a heart to help.
William Penn

Time is what we want most, but what we use worst.
William Penn

To be a man's own fool is bad enough, but the vain man is everybody's.
William Penn

To be like Christ is to be a Christian.
William Penn

True silence is the rest of the mind, and is to the spirit what sleep is to the body, nourishment and refreshment.
William Penn

Truth often suffers more by the heat of its defenders than the arguments of its opposers.
William Penn

We are apt to love praise, but not deserve it. But if we would deserve it, we must love virtue more than that.
